  • Charlie decides that he’ll use his intelligence to take Dr. Strauss and Dr. Nemur’s studies to his level. Charlie finds out that he’ll start to become like Algernon. Charlie starts to regress and doesn’t talk to anyone for a while. He then goes back to the factory, explains what had happened to him and gets his job back.
  • Charlie decided that he wanted to get away from all the people pitying him. He tells them that he was grateful that he got a chance to be smart and that he was going to move away. He asks that someone will put flowers on Algernon’s grave. The story is then left open.
